Who hosts The Hit List?

The show is hosted by husband and wife team Rochelle and Marvin Humes.

The pair have been married since 2012 and have three children together.

Speaking about working with a partner, former star of The Saturdays Rochelle told Metro.co.uk that while it “could have ended up as a nightmare”, they have a lot of fun working together.

Marvin, who rose to fame as a member of JLS, said that “working with the love of your life” means that he can be far more direct with his co-presenter.

“Do you know what, I think working with the love of your life, you can be so much more direct with each other, so it’s actually probably a bit easier.

“If you’re working with someone and you know them but they’re not your partner, you have to go around certain things a bit more.”

Marvin went on to describe the pair of them as “lucky”, suggesting that the reason they work so well with each other is because of how direct they can be.

“We haven’t had no domestics on set or anything like that,” he said.

“Not yet. Not yet,” Rochelle joked in response.

What prize do you win on The Hit List?

All you have to do to win a potential £10,000 prize is name the artist and title of hit songs.

While it sounds easy, each round gets harder.

The first round starts with the contestants given the opportunity to answer five quick-fire music questions and name five artists/songs which have all been top five hits, from five different decades,

Each track will be played for five seconds and players must give the name and artist of the track to score a point.

Round two will see the buzzer enter which gives contestants the extra pressure of who will press it first.

The team with the fewest points at the end of the round is eliminated.

Round Three is all about the intros as the two remaining teams identify a range of song titles and artists by listening to the very beginning of the songs against the clock.

The last remaining team faces the final round where they can win up to £10,000.

They must identify ten songs and artists – but if they take longer than five seconds to answer the money drops.
